The Latest Gboard Suggestions Bar can Now Translate Emoji into GIFs and Stickers

The most recent version of the Gboard mobile app’s suggestion bar can now translate emoji into GIFs and stickers in a jiffy…

Back in July, some code inspection of the Gboard mobile app revealed a feature that would allow users to translate emoji into GIFs and stickers.

With the latest release of the Gboard mobile app, there’s now a new “Suggestions” bar, prompting users to “Tap an emoji to get suggestions.” Selecting a character will automatically load related GIFs and stickers to then insert into conversations.

If Google can’t find any matches the mobile app simply alerts users with “No suggestions here…try a different emoji.”

The new Gboard suggestions bar that translates emoji into GIFs and stickers is now available on beta version 8.8. Some users report seeing the feature but it doesn’t yet function.
